What makes me HATE Chennai?Views: 176

Hey, firstly Its good to see a message from Goks, which could only mean his honeymooning is over ;)

Secondly, I think one point most of us havent covered, a very important one at that, is beggars.

Strangely, the beggars seem to have reduced considerably in the last couple of years- call it a secret evacuation move from amma or what - the fact is this.

I have lived about an year in Mumbai and I keep travelling to Mumbai frequently - trust me, the beggars are too demanding and disturbing. Lest this looks like an imperialist attitude, I confess sometimes it gets to be a real pain.

I dont know if others in this forum have realized this or disturbed them.

Secondly, the filth in Mumbai - on the roads is really unbearable - I think the city could do with a cleanliness drive. People living right near it, it could spread diseases for sure. I dont have my statistic on this, but thats a good guess.

I also think Chennai is quite a safe city for women - Barring the Sarika shah episode, I think by and large people in Chennai are a bit scared about eve-teasing and crossing their limits..maybe Sharada has a better view on this - having lived across Metros.

finally, the temples in Chennai are awesome - Do we know Mylapore (literally the land of the peacock) predates Chennai itself by atleast a couple of thousand years? What about Egmore and Adyar? Awesome places that store heritage buildings. Do we know the Nawab of Arcot lives right there in Triplicane?

Raos cafe and Murudis are 2 landmarks - in Mylapore on Kutchery street. I havent been there yet, but knowing Mylapore, I wouldnt be surprised if they gave the others a run for their money.

I could go on but am stopping here.

Viva La Madras!
